Beetroot Juice

Ever since the humble beetroot juice emerged as an indispensable dietary supplement for the elite Olympic medalists and accordingly attained the special status of a superfood, the benefits of taking this juice became more evident to the general public. Nowadays, beauticians recommend taking a glass of beetroot juice daily in the morning for glowing skin. Dietitians consider this juice as an excellent liver detox, and fitness trainers suggest it for endurance. Cardiologists & pulmonologists prescribe plain beetroot juice for building a healthy heart & lungs. It is all due to a magic ingredient, nitrate, found plentifully in beetroots.

Health benefits of beetroots:

Beetroots are the rich sources of nitrates, they make nitrates from the nitrogen gas in the soil. When these nitrates are ingested into our body, they turned into nitric oxide much needed for the increased blood flow and thus improved oxygen supply to all parts of our body.

Beetroot as a superfood:

Nowadays we can find a number of beetroot supplements in the market particularly targeting heart patients, athletes, and the likes as these supplements are useful to increase the blood flow & oxygen supply.

However, it is better to take fresh homemade juice to reap the benefits of beetroots to the fullest as cooking them would reduce the availability of nitrates to a large extent. I have prepared fresh beetroot juice using a food processor. You may check out my other beetroot recipes here.

Extraction of beetroot juice

We can add zest to this earthy-flavored juice by adding the juice extracted from amla, lemon, orange, or any other citrus fruits. Since they all are rich sources of vitamin C, this aids in better absorption of iron in the beetroots. We can also add a few chunks of carrot along with beet while extracting the juice to add a sweet flavor to this juice.

I also found a good recipe this year that blends the beets into blueberry muffins. What a treat they are! Thanks for this good information. Now I now why beets make me feel so good.

    1. Yes, you can. But I would suggest you to sprinkle some rock salt or chaat masala for adding some flavor in here.
